Note: this page is very much a work in progress.


"FMRAV" is the abbreviation for "For Mature Readers and Viewers": this wiki's version for NSFW.


the intention

This is an attempt to figure out how to most smoothly reconcile the desire of those who want to post adult content; while making it, for a lack of a better word, safe, for others, and for those who don't want such. Hence rules here are subject to change, but things are settling in regarding this issue.

the new abbreviations

Instead of "NSFW"—as different workplaces might have different standards, and these days many are working (and schooling) at home, this wiki is experimenting with a new abbreviation: FMRAV, i.e. for mature readers and viewers. (The word "viewers" is being included as there's likely to be the odd image, and maybe even video—maybe audio—RLV: readers, listeners, viewers)

  • RAV: readers and viewers
  • FARAV: for all readers and viewers—implicitly anyone
  • FMRAV: for mature readers and viewers—for those who can tolerate, maybe appreciate, some adult content, are mature, not easily offended, have few or no "triggers," and take responsibility for risks in such
  • FIRAV: for interested readers and viewers—for those who not only tolerate adult content—and are also mature, not easily offended, have few or no "triggers," and take responsibility for risks in such—but actively seek it out

4 types of pages to deal with

  1. title and content aren't FMRAV—i.e. title and content are FARAV
  2. title isn't FMRAV, but some content
  3. title isn't FMRAV, but content is
  4. title and content are FMRAV


Templates and categorization are being worked out.

If a page is FMRAV, it should probably have a hatnote such as:

This page is for [[Fiction and Fictional Settings Wiki:FMRAV|FAFSW:FMRAV]]; and is intended only for those who can tolerate adult content, are mature, not easily offended, have few or no "triggers," and take responsibility for risks for such.

or words to that effect.

Pages that link to such should have such above or besides the link; and/or make use of a soft redirect, whether this redirect is a page or a section of a page with sections of soft redirects. This way one doesn't have to put a lot of stuff in the first link—e.g. a small link to a section on a page, which in turn soft-redirects to the page or section. FMRAV pages should also go into Category:FMRAV or subcats.

FMRAV pages that are put into non-FMRAV categories should be piped as such; e.g. [[Category:Contents|Φ]], maybe with a hatnote in the category page about FMRAV, using the Cyrillic "ef," i.e. "Ф," or Greek "phi," i.e. "Φ"[1]

Those with FMRAV titles (in addition to content) should not be categorized, save in FMRAV categories (again, [[:Category:FMRAV]]).

title and content aren't FMRAV—i.e. title and content are FARAV

Let's there's a story named Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (first of a three part trilogy).

If there's nothing adult, much less pornographic, about it, it'd be categorized as the writer felt is appropriate and leave it at that.

title isn't FMRAV, but some content is

Let's there's a story named Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy). It's mostly not adult, but a few chapters are:

Let's say the chapters are sub-pages, and are:

  1. Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 1—A Walk
  2. [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 2—another beach party]]
  3. [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 3—12 men, 12 swords]]
  4. Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 4—It's Just a Little Dream
  5. [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 5—The Massage]]

Let's say chapters 2,3, and 5 are FMRAV.

  1. [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 2—another beach party]] has graphic nudity and explicit sex.
  2. [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 3—12 men, 12 swords]] describes lots of violence and death.
  3. [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 5—The Massage]] is fetishic.

They would need hatnotes and soft redirects, either one per sub-page or as a section of a page for the the story that is generally a collection of redirects.

[[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 2—another beach party]] could go into Category:The world's relatively small little known places (with the "|Φ"), Category:FMRAV, and Category:FMRAV (graphic nudity and explicit sex).

[[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 3—12 men, 12 swords]] could go into Category:FMRAV, Category:FMRAV (graphic violence), and Category:Fights (with the "|Φ").

[[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (second of a three part trilogy)/chapter 5—The Massage]] could go into Category:FMRAV and Category:FMRAV (fetishism).

title isn't FMRAV, but content is

If it's essentially porn, use a hatnote such as "Don't read this if you have problems with graphic nudity and explicit sex" etc. The Narration: page would be put into regular categories though with a pipe and "Φ": e.g. [[Category:Narration|Φ]], save for Category:FMRAV, again non-FMRAV categories with FMRAV pages would have hatnotes. In time there will be FMRAV sub-categories such as Category:FMRAV (graphic nudity),   Category:FMRAV (explicit sex),   Category:FMRAV (graphic nudity and explicit sex), etc.

versions

One can also have versions of stories, where, say, sex scenes might not be greatly necessary for the story but greatly adds to it for some.

e.g. [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island]] and [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (FMRAV)]]—i.e. FMRAV;
or,
[[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (FARAV)]]—i.e. FARAV and [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island]].


One can even make 3 versions:

e.g. [[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (FARAV)]]

and,

[[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (FMRAV)]]—nudity and implied sex makes it FMRAV

and,

[[Narration:Memories of Wild Mango Island (FIRAV)]]—graphic nudity, explicit sex, fetishism, and irreverence definitely makes it FMRAV/FIRAV.

title and content are FMRAV

Let's say there's a story named [[Narration:Mitch gets vigorously --------ed by Trump while Lindsey gets --- ----- of 20 Proud Boys]], though with the titled explicitly spelled out.

It'd go into the list this redirect, FMRAV:List of pages with FMRAV titles (soft redirect), leads to. It could only go into Category:FMRAV or its subcats, and all others would need to start with the colon after the brackets: Category:Contents

finally

Namespaces that can imply obvious scientific, medical, political, cultural, and artistic value, are less likely to have the FMRAV notes; stuff that's simply gratuitous—nothing wrong being just gratuitous, it's just that it's harder for lawyers to defend in these still somewhat puritanical times—less so. (e.g. medical diagrams of a particular type of sex is generally more legally protected that gratuitous scenes of that particular type of sex.)

Almost needless to say, this isn't a porn site (or at least not just a porn site): so again, don't break Mirahaze's rules, don't get Mirahaze into trouble—read the TOS and like. No CP, no bestiality, and no necrophilia—at least nothing explicit—or e.g. sex with aliens or werewolves are exempt if they're sentient, vampires less so. Keep the gore to a minimum, and don't mix it with sex. Ditto excreta or like. If you want to test things a little, fine: just don't get huffy if it's removed: and for anyone of Miraheze who thinks this wiki's bureaucrats or administrators are doing anything wrong, please inform us. The bureaucrat can take censure, even banning, far more easily if it's not by a sandbagging. :D
